21 Nov 2019
The energy consumed in housing amounted to close on 66 terawatt hours (TWh) in 2018. Consumption fell by around one TWh from the previous year. The weather was warmer than in the previous year, which decreased the need for heating energy. The number and volume of dwellings increased further. Consumption of indoor space heating fell by three per cent from 2017 to 2018. The energy consumption of household appliances went up by two per cent. The data are based on Statistics Finland's statistics on energy consumption in households.

Consumption of heating energy in spaces is presented in the statistics according to type of building and energy source. Energy consumption of household appliances is divided into consumption of home electrical equipment, lighting and cooking.
